Our micro-preemie son's journey

Christmas (12-25-12)

Christmas sure was fun this year! For the first time, Cayden wasn’t extremely overwhelmed when he walked in to see what Santa had left. He was absolutely adorable. See for yourself.

His OCD tendencies were in full swing. He could NOT stop with “opening” a gift if there was even one piece of tape or paper left on it. A few times we had to step in and help him out before he had a meltdown. He loved throwing the paper and was really into opening his gifts this year. He was so cute, exclaiming, “hot wheels”, or the name of what he received.  Cayden was VERY blessed this year by all of his loved ones.

Santa left Sofia the First doll for him, requested of course, and he made me hold Sofia so she could “see” him opening his gifts and he would show her what he got. It was too cute for words!

After we had Christmas with us, we had Christmas with my parents, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew. Everyone was super excited with their gifts and it was fun watching the kids get their new toys. At a few points, they got so excited that they were just wanting to rip paper off and move on versus paying attention to what they actually got.

We had ham, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, and rolls for Christmas dinner. It was yummy. Cayden crashed not too long after for a MUCH needed nap while mommy and daddy put together/opened all of his gifts so he could play with them.

This was the last Christmas as a family of three. Next year, we will be celebrating as a family of four. That’s pretty wild.

Here is a picture from my view of the baby mountain, otherwise known as Lorelai.


P.S. There are some more pictures in the photo gallery. We didn’t get many this year in the spirit of trying to enjoy ourselves and me not being glued to the camera.
